Future Books

I have good news and possibly bad news for some of my readers.

The 5th book in the Wolves Among Us series is in progress. It likely won't be finished until next year, but hopefully it won't take as long to publish as my last book, which was published almost exactly a year after the previous book in the series. The 5th book will bring together the main characters from all four previous books (The Chase, Rogues, Broken, and Alpha Female). Therefore, it is somewhat of a sequel to all the characters' stories. Because of this, it requires extra thought and planning. It is not easy balancing so many characters, but so far, I think it is coming along very well.

Now for the bad news... I do not know if anyone still reads or cares about my other series, Mating of the Beasts and Ways of the Pack, but I have no plans to continue those series.

I feel that Ways of the Pack ended with The Return and there is nothing more for me to write about in that world. I started that series when I was sixteen and I have outgrown it and many of the characters. In fact, I cringe when I think on what I wrote.

As far as Mating of the Beasts goes, I started the third book in the series, but I painted myself into a corner, so to speak. I have no where to go with it and I no longer feel a connection to the characters. I can't write about them, no matter how hard I try. I may someday return and finish what I started, but I do not want anyone to expect that.

Both of those series began before I was even twenty years old. They helped me grow as a writer, but trying to continue them would hold me back. Wolves Among Us fits me better now. I feel that I have come up with more realistic characters and story-lines for it due to the fact that I have more life experience now. I mean, honestly, when I wrote my first "romance," I hadn't even said two words to a male of the species... much less dated anyone. How did I know what it was like? Admittedly, I still didn't have that experience until after I published Rogues and while I was writing Alpha Female, but
even now having that experience, I feel that my Wolves Among Us series portrays it better than the books I wrote when I was younger.

More to the point... I apologize to anyone looking forward to books from those series. If I could continue them, I would. I had so many stories in my head for those characters, but I just cannot write them.

Thanks for sticking with me!

Alpha Female - Cover Reveal + Blurb

Becca Carlyle, not content with living in the male-dominated world of werewolves, wants more than simply being an obedient mate.  She wants to empower females, to become an example of how to stand up and be counted, refusing to roll over while males lord it over her.

What better way than becoming an Alpha, a position traditionally held by males? 

Finally, realizing her dream of becoming an Alpha, Becca is accepted as Alpha of a small pack, but things don’t go exactly as planned when the Alpha of a nearby and much larger pack challenges her during a full moon.  The outcome threatens everything Becca holds dear and she is forced to make some tough decisions.

Will love or pride win out?


“Alpha Female” is a novelette (about 17,000 words). It is part of the “Wolves Among Us” series, but no other books need to be read in order to understand the events of “Alpha Female.” At this point, the books in the “Wolves Among Us” series can be read in any order. Here is a list of the books in the series, in the recommended reading order.
  • The Chase
  • Broken
  • Alpha Female
  • Rogues

New Book Coming THIS MONTH!

A year after the release of my most popular book "Rogues," I am releasing the next book in the "Wolves Among Us" series. The current title (subject to change) is "Alpha Female." It is a 17,000 word novelette, taking place around the same time as "Rogues" and even featuring a cameo from Kaegan Troy.

Currently, I just need to make some final edits, write a good blurb, and create a book cover, and then it will be ready for publishing. I do not have an official release date, but as long as nothing horrible happens, it will be published by the end of the month.

I do hope to have the next book in the series nearly done before "Alpha Female" is published, however. This book has no title as of right now, but features the characters of all four previous books in the series. That's right, it is a sequel to all of the characters stories. I am hoping it will be the longest book in the series so far because there is a lot to cover. There are a lot of amazing characters in it and I want to insure I focus on all of them equally, insuring that the next chapter of their stories feels complete and satisfying to readers. That's not to say that this, the 5th book in the series, will be the end of their stories! No, not at all! In fact, it is simply the beginning for a few new characters.

Thanks for sticking with me, even though it has taken so long for the next book to be released. I promise, the wait is almost over. Watch out! The Alpha Female is coming for your soon. ;)
